At the boarding schools, the sdaj-registration and sdaj-students networks have already been abolished and replaced by the Wi-Fi network eduroam. Instructions for creating a login and connecting can be found on the page in the connection section.

My online game does not work. Why?

By default, for security reasons, most Internet communication is blocked at the boarding school so that only basic services (web, email, video calls,…) work. To allow an internet game, contact us by email or form and state the name of the game or the platform through which you run the game.

I can’t register on because I don’t know the password for the student email. Is it possible to recover the password?

You must contact the university email administrator for your faculty. You can find the contact in AIS2 in the Contacts and University e-mail management section (Office 365).

Wi-Fi very often drops out, it’s slow, online lectures are unseen, … Is there anything you can do about it?

Unfortunately, the current coverage of Wi-Fi transmitters on the boarding school is not sufficient. Its expansion is planned, but will take some time. Another problem is people who create their own Wi-Fi hotspots on devices, which worsens the quality of the eduroam Wi-Fi signal. For a stable and fast internet connection (for online learning, HD content consumption, playing games, downloading larger files, …) we recommend using a cable connection.

Why should I pay for the cable internet when there is Eduroam?

The fee as such was never an internet fee, but a service fee. For a fee, we are renewing outdated infrastructure, improving existing connections, reconstructing cable networks, setting up Wi-Fi networks etc.

There can be several reasons. We recommend that you follow the instructions on the page in the connection section. If you still can’t register, don’t hesitate to contact us.

You can buy it at any computer store. Request an Internet (network or FTP) cable. You have to choose the length according to where you want the computer / notebook to be located. Prices range from 2 €, depending on the length of the cable.

Can I download torrents?

Downloading torrents may not work because it is blocked. In general, we recommend not breaking the law.

10 euros per person per semester. If a person has more than one device (computer for cable connection, laptop for Wi-Fi eduroam and mobile phone for Wi-Fi eduroam), he only pays one fee.

What is my fee receipt for?

Keep this confirmation in case of problems with identifying your payments (typos, etc.) or to speed up the connection to cable network.

If I live in a triple-bed room and both roommates have paid for an Internet connection, do I need to pay?

The fee of 10 euros / semester is tied to each person. Whether it is a double-bed or a triple-bed room.
